Nissan Motor said it will extend a shutdown of U.S. manufacturing plants until mid-May, due to the continued increase in cases of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nissan stated earlier it was temporarily laying off about 10,000 U.S. hourly workers effective April 6. Subaru stated Tuesday it plans to resume production at its Indiana assembly plant on May 11.

A number of automakers have stated they hope to restart U.S. production on May 4, but some auto executives find it better for the industry to restart during mid-May.

About 688,019 people in the US have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 35,907 people in the country.
